taliban and al-qaeda free? how much does it mean to you and those who lost their lives? >> it means a lot to me. the afghan people made a lot of progress. if go back from 1979, really until the present, they've been at war. the country has been torn apart. in the last few years, they have made progress, more rights for women, more kids in schools, economic progress and a lot of different things. they don't want to lose that. to me, it's very important for our moral responsibility to the afghan people, but also for our geostrategic interest in the region. i don't necessarily think that means thousands of american troops there. i do think that it means a strategic partnership to secure in the minds of afghan people that they've got a friend. >> steve: we want to talk to you on the other side of a quick timeout about saddam hussein because there is some stuff that you can clarify for us. so the general is sticking around. more on his great new book "my share of the task" coming up. >> brian: let's check in with bill hemmer to find out what's coming up at the top of the hour. >> good morning.
